Busy Mother by Mary Bone


Busy Mother

I had burp running down my back,
there’s always a diaper to change.
I guess I should have been wearing a sack.
Supper’s cooking on the range.
There is always a mess of some kind,
waiting to be cleaned up.
I’m thinking I’m still far behind,
as I drink the dregs in
my coffee cup.
